Routers : Cisco ASR9922, Juniper MX2020 and Huawei NE5000E

Comparison of Routers Cisco, Juniper and Huawei

There are lot of comparison when we are talking about the various requirements in the networks, Always thinking which router will suit for which capacity. Market comes up with surprises when one product company thinks they are been established in market but other product company comes up with the best model, customer thinks what to do, how to judge which model suits their network.

Here we come with the post where we actually compare 3 models from 3 different Product companies with their best models of Routers. I don't know which model will be fit in your network domain but we will discuss about these 3 models with their specifications in little details.

So we have 3 models and they are Cisco ASR 9922, Juniper MX2020, Huawei NE5000E. I wonder where these model used in actual environment. Really i don't know where actually they used, who is using these Monsters in their network but did u realise how next generation networks demanding increases day to day.

"It reminds me the same situation wherein 3 different Top guns from 3 different countries showcased their power to the rest of the world. These are kinds of Missiles from Cisco, Juniper and Huawei that showcased their strength to the network world but the use cases may be in future"

Cisco     : Founder : Leonard Bosack, Sandy Lerner ( United States of America )
Juniper : Founder : Pradeep Sindhu ( India )
Huawei : Founder : REN Zhengfei ( China )

If anyone from you guys know the actual use cases of these devices please help to share the information about the same so that we will guide the followers accordingly.

Now lets talk about the these 3 models about their capacity. The capacity is their backplane traffic control capacity.

Maximum Backplane Capacity :

  • Cisco ASR 9922: 160 Tbps maximum Backplane Traffic capacity with 20 Slots
  • Juniper MX2020: 80 Tbps maximum Backplane Traffic capacity with 20 Slots
  • Huawei : 6.4 Tbps maximum Backplane capacity with 16 Slots
Processors: 
  • Cisco : 2.27 GHz Quadcore Processor
  • Juniper: 1.8 GHz Quadcore Processor
  • Huawei: 1.5 GHz Quadcore Processor


All these routers are capable of supporting 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps port speeds in their chassis.

Storage :

  • Cisco : Storage upto 12 Gbps
  • Juniper : Storage upto 16 Gbps
  • Huawei : Storage upto 16 Gbps

I am expecting may be Service providers like AT&T, BT, Orange, NTT Communications, Verizon, Telefonica, TATA and so on used these kinds of routers in their core networks for high back-plane capacity traffic or it can be used in the Facebook, LinkedIn or Google network. These kind of routers are basically used in the Service providers core. so we have many service providers who are providing MPLS, Internet services to the clients.

Various features are supported by these kinds of routers like Multi-chassis ether-channel, Non-stop Forwarding, MPLS-TRR, Non-stop routing and various high end features.


Lets discuss the comparison in details as follows:-
   
Networks-Baseline ( Comparison of Cisco, Huawei and Juniper Routers )

Cisco firm will be presented by router Cisco ASR 9922. Given product backs up capacity 160 Tbps and this way it is the most productive product of ASR series. It can support 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps of port speed as i discussed in my above statement as well.

For comparison in given article firm Juniper presents a model Juniper MX2020, which backs up carrying capacity from 34.4 to 80 Tbps. MX2020 supports a very high density 10GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE, interfaces. You can use the dedicated circuits as well like SONET/SDH, ATM and PDH for the connectivity.

 It also supports subscribers’ management with wide-band connection, modern opportunities of time synchronizing and virtualization, which meet strict demands of mobile services.
Due to scalable in industry-leading set of opportunities the router MX2020 ideally suited for boarders and consolidated borders and net core and application cores as well.


Huawei represents model Huawei NE5000E. This very model in 2008 afforded the firm Huawei show itself to be arch-rival in the area of Internet backbone.NE5000E presents multi-level protection from the device to the network. For protection on the devices level, NE5000E contains passive plane where all key components of the device are switched in “hot-pluggable” and posses a function of hot back up. The solution contains nonstop address modification (NSF) on the basis of states and hot-swappable and nonstop routing (NSR) on the panel level and on the processes level in all scenario.
